about china's actions in introducing this new air defense nobody is quite sure what it means but obviously there's a grave risk of some kind of accident when the chinese side and the japanese side. so the fact that joe biden has come out quite so strongly, in support of japan, should serve as a strong message to china to reflect on its actions. joe biden also said today quoting the words of his father, there's nothing worse than an intentional war than an unintentional one. and obviously that reflects again the great concerns that people have about thens thats of an accident between aircraft between different nations and what that might mean in the future should that happen. >> stephanie reporting. >> one man's claims of being racially profiled over 200 times. next on al jazeera america. reports of a police department singling out people at a convenient store p p lap weekdays at 5 eastern only on al jazeera america investigation recently revealed that for years the miami gardens police department racially profiled clients and employees of one particular convenient store. a cl

be unemployment attached to eliminating this perk and the director of the defense agency says they've already cut their budget by $700 million since 1993. other military services on the chopping block include the pentagon channel which hosts shows like grill sergeants, a half hour cooking show featuring some of the top chefs as they guide viewers through step by step menu preparation and how to shop there. stars and stripes newspaper may also face cuts along with armed forces radio and television which broadcasts football games and news for service members overseas. their subsidies include 51.6 million dollars for american forces radio and television service, $6.1 for the pentagon channel and $7.8 million for stars and stripes. all of this, some say, a drop in the bucket when you consider what the pentagon is budgeting for fuel for the afghan military alone this year. more than $125 million. and $4 billion it's budgeted to support the afghan military this year alone. but budget hawks say that in the era of costco and sam's club, the commissi commisary may be o they can't afford. jon: thank you. j

to balance america's fiscal woes on the backs of defense, that is why it is so frustrating to see things like benefits and military compensation, being the first things discussed when we talk about reducing the pentagon budget. there is a lot of waste and fat to be cut at the dod, let's be smart and serious on how to attack it. but let's be serious, the private on post doesn't have a lobbyist in washington protecting him. but the defense contractors and other systems do. so i don't think it is smart to start with the pay in compensation, even though everything in some way will have to be on the table. >> and there are a lot of republicans who want to see cuts in the sequester and they support that. and that will include some cuts in the military, as well. but the question is whether you have to start with the actual service personnel and their pay. now, i know their pay has gone up more than it has in the average private sector for certain workers in the past few years. but it is not that high, pete. the average pay is $45,000 a year for a single person. and married with two children, $49,000
